Pink and the Perigee Moon

Explanation: On April 25 a nearly full moon rose just before sunset. Welcomed in a clear blue sky and framed by cherry blossoms, its familiar face was captured in this snapshot from Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland. Known to some as a Pink Moon, April’s full lunar phase occurred with the moon near perigee. That’s the closest point in its not-quite-circular orbit around planet Earth, making this Pink Moon one of the closest and brightest full moons of the year. If you missed it, don’t worry. Your next chance to see a full perigee moon will be on May 26. Known to some as a Flower Moon, May’s full moon will actually be closer to you than April’s by about 98 miles (158 kilometers), or about 0.04% the distance from the Earth to the Moon at perigee.

说明: 在4月25日,一轮接近满相的明月在日落前升起。在这幅摄于苏格兰·爱丁堡·利斯的影像里,熟悉的月盘有澄澈蓝天和盛开的樱天为伴。这轮又名为粉红月的4月满月,出现在近地点附近。在它绕行地球的椭圆轨道上,近地点为最靠近地球的位置,因此这轮粉红月是今年最近最明亮的满月之一。如果你错过了,没关系。下次再见到近地点满月的机会,近在5月26日。5月这轮名为花月的满月,比4月的满月近158公里,约是地球-月球距离的百分之四。
